COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew our beer in New York, about halfway between the hop fields of the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields of Kent, England. So we use earthy English hops to build the foundation and bright citrusy American hops to bring the noise in the rambunctious IPA we call BLAST! British Maris Otter and German Pilsner malts lends solidity, balance and bready flavors to brace up a beer that’s beautifully hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. Minerally hop bitterness is followed by a shock wave of flavor and aroma. You won’t even know what hit you.

Malts: Scottish Floor-malted Maris Otter, German Pilsner Malt

Hops: Willamette, Magnum, Cascade, Fuggle, Aurora, Zythos, Bravo, Simcoe, Sorachi Ace, Amarillo, Experiment 6300

gramity (1448) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
Pale golden color. Aroma is fantastic, with distinct earthy, citrus, flowery aroma hops dominating. Slight malty sweetness. Nice balance of bitterness and sweetness. Good head and nice lacing in the glass. Bold yet traditional over-the-top American IPA.

VictorStr (1434) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2014
Ja, jag hade verkligen inga problem med denna. Kraftig i aromen, väldigt fruktig. Framhäver beskan och humlen tydligt, tjock fyllig kropp.

Draft at Brooklyn Brewery. Spicy hop aromas are a bit one-dimensional. This beer is candy sweet while also packing a bitter, abrupt finish. An initial hop bite is followed by a hoppy/caramelly center. With little finish, this is a short beer with a unique palate.

Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach - saving a bit yet, but had inspiration from reading article from the brewer, thanks bro! Pours Poured an orangey yellow with an off white head. Almost no lacing. Aroma has citrus and pine. And more citrus and pine. A bit of bubblegum later. Taste is of citrus and pine, heavy resin, and some sweeter caramelly malts in the solid backbone. Medium bodied and sticky. Light alcohol presence. Finishes more to the bitter side of bittersweet. This is not a top 10 DIPA, or even close to it, but it is solid and tasty, and likely this breweries’ best offering.

Nephilium (1410) - Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Nice pine hop aroma, pours a clear light amber with a thin white head. The hop notes carry forth tropical fruit notes with a finish of pine and bitterness. Long lingering bitter finish. Very nice and easy drinking, a nice step into the IIPA category from Brooklyn.

Pours a hazy brown orange with a white head. Aroma is malt, floral, some fruit and hops. Taste is sweetish and bitter. Very good.

Have seen this many times on draft, always scrolled past. Saw it for the first time bottled today and picked up a 4 pack for $8.99. Not a huge investment in case it’s dumpster juice. So here we go. Pours a clear light amber with a white head. Active carbonation steaming. Smells of earthy,dirty hops, some dirty malts. Taste is similar, some funky dirty hops,a touch of citrus but mostly those dirty english type hops. I’m guessing goldings for the English hops (no idea, just a guess based on the dirty aroma) and perhaps Willamette for the US hops? Pretty thin mouthfeel. Slightly fruity finish with no real bitterness present. It’s middle of the road.
